I keep hearing there is going to be a couple of debuts on Thursday one will be completely unexpected at 14 ...now if anyone watched training at the members day it was clear as day to me who it was. I’m not typing his name till after the team list comes out cause I have the feeling Bellamy is going to add him to the 21 and just not delete him

RD 1 in 2 days ...bring it on

So Smoothy likely plays off the bench? Feel like we make another swap too.

Really big first up test for us. Entirely new right edge will need to be up for it from the get go.

Will be interesting to see how Cheese goes playing a full 80 at hooker consistently while Harry is out. Doubt he'll be able to play with the reckless abandon he showed that was so entertaining to watch in previous seasons.

It's why Smoothy might make his debut.....to play some time at Hooker to give Cheese a chop out when he blows a head gasket....
Remember this day, men, for it will be yours for all time

With the new kid coming in, Does this show Belly Ache doesn't have the necessary confidence in Hectic Cheese at hooker? Or is the young fella that good, he commands his place in the team?

Nicho isn’t playing

I’ve been to 3 training session in 2 weeks first to pick up something for my local team them members day and then the public holiday

All 3 sessions Nicho has worn the reserves colours the whole time while Cheese and Smoothy has switch jerseys multiple times so if Craig plays Nicho tonight I will be completely surprised

The first session I went to Dean was wing the last two it was Remis and George so I assume that’s what they are sticking too

I believe Chris is playing and Tui but not sure on the rest of the line up
